OMWD’s largest expense is purchasing raw water from the San Diego County Water Authority. SDCWA has proposed a rate increase of approximately 14 percent for next year, impacting future OMWD rates.

SDCWA has asked for public input as it drafts its two-year budget and will hold board workshops on April 11 and 13 and May 16 and 18 at its headquarters in Kearny Mesa. SDCWA will post more detail about the proposed cost increase as part of the April and May board meeting packets approximately one week in advance of each meeting.
